Tree of Life
Wicklewood X Mola Sasa
Red Blue Square
Wicklewood X Mola Sasa is a collaboration that celebrates a kindred aesthetic - vivid colour, vibrant motifs, impeccable finishing and aligned philosophies - preserving artisan traditions, sourcing sustainable materials and working with local female artisans to empower women. This square cushion, crafted in red and blue, is handmade by the Guna Dule indigenous women and is inspired by the traditional Guatemalan tree of life design. The female artisans use an ancient appliqué technique of hand sewing cut-out layers of fabric to form the intricate Tree of Life design.
This cushion measures 50 cm x 50 cm and is filled with an oversized down insert to ensure maximum comfort. It has an invisible zip in the bottom seam, is handcrafted in the U.K and comes with a custom hand block printed dust bag.
All of the Kuna Textiles are made in Colombia in the Caiman Alto Reserve by Mola Sasa's artisan women partners of the Guna Dule community. For generations the artisan women have passed down an ancient appliqué technique of hand sewing cut-out layers of fabric to form an intricate piece of art. Each fabric is the specific design of the artisan woman who carefully works on it. The Guna culture, beliefs and traditions can be found woven into each composition. Some depict stories, animals or daily scenes while others offer a more abstract design.
The Kuna Textiles are then brought to England where they are crafted into cushions. Each one is backed with Wicklewood’s namesake fabric and our signature contrasting trim is added to make each piece even more special and idiosyncratic.
